ShapeShifter Lab – 18 Whitwell Place, Brooklyn
Former Kodo member Kaoru Watanabe specializes in Japanese taiko drums and the shinobue, the Japanese bamboo flute, yet he blends these Eastern sounds with Western contemporary music. He’ll do this again Saturday at ShapeShifter Lab, when he performs three short sets with other New York-based musicians.
